Short Film on Sculptor Paula Winokur

We are consciously trying not to let ceramics and pottery take over, with an abundance of this type of content floating around the web currently it’s a very precise balancing act to maintain. Something that doesn’t come along every day however is an insightful short film that investigates the style and background of a ceramic artist, so I’m including this today as it may have been here there and everywhere come tomorrow. This features a …

Collection of Ceramics by Olen Hsu

After a good couple of hours learning on the wheel myself last night I’ve got a lot of admiration for todays entry into our daily content, American creative Olen Hsu who’s somewhat of a master of the art. His works embody a subtle quietness of form which are given a gentle measure of personality in his polished glazes, I think these add real character. He aims to recreate textures such as shell, bone, water or skin with a suggestion …

Taro Tabuchi, Wood-Fired Kiln Porcelain

This is possibly the first time this year that I’ve come across a selection of imagery from an artist that’s just too vast. It’s that expansive that the 15 images I placed here in my opinion are nowhere near enough to represent the message that I want to convey, but I guess you’ve got to work with what you have and hopefully this summarises the direction of the creative in general. All these photos are definitely inspiring and really made my morn …

Ann Linnemann, Ceramic Designer, Artist and Potter

If you’re anything like me every so often you’ll come across a designer or artist who seems to create work that’s near enough perfect. It doesn’t happen all that often but when it does every photo you view just seems to hit home, and when I bring it across here to showcase it’s impossible to pick up a small selection of imagery to sum up their portfolio. This happened to me earlier when I …

Phil Elson, Hand Thrown Porcelain Tableware

Ceramics has been high up on our list of inspiring subjects lately, although I’m partial to all aspects of the field I seem to be pulled towards porcelain as a material for some reason or another. I think it’s because I like the transparency and the simplicity, it’s quite clean and precise which probably adheres to my sense of aesthetic. Today I wanted to bring into focus the wonderful works of Phil Elson, a maker from Australia, who really caught my eye …

Ceramics by Virginie Besengez

I thought we’d head to France today in search of a little creative inspiration, visiting the work of Virginie Besengez, a ceramic artist based in the idyllic setting that is Wambrechies, which can be found on the map just north of Lille. As an artist Virginie has been known to dabble in both porcelain and stoneware, with her clean and contemporary white vessels providing a nice contrast to those of a more rustic and primitive nature. This is perh …

Yumiko iihoshi Porcelain

Even though we don’t necessarily work on weekends here I’ll still keep my eyes open for inspiration, beautifully designed objects and information that’s new and exciting in the design world. Sometimes it’s just luck of the draw to what you’ll find but generally I discover something that’s really intriguing or positive, I guess that’s the nature of the web right now, since it’s so big and so vast. Plus, so many creatives are updating their …

Ceramics by Lilith Rockett

I’m not sure how we’ve not posted up Lilith Rockett’s work before, I’ve come across many ceramicists over the years, albeit each one having a slightly different flavour, but I’ve never seen such a complete collection as Lilith’s. She works primarily in porcelain which seems to be a massive attraction for me as a material, I love the translucency, fluidity, and also the soft look of the finished piece. Some people may see it as bland …

Inside the Billy Lloyd Ceramics Studio

Some of you may have seen that we’re going to be changing quite a few things here on the site over the next coming weeks. It’s fun seeing the development of the site that I started when I was a youngster, even to this day I still can’t believe the changes that have been made and it’s satisfying to know that we’re narrowing down the subject quite dramatically. I feel clarity coming on. This new website that I’m working on should hopefully …

Vicki Grima, 87 Spoons Project

I’ve got the biggest admiration for the creatives that take one field or form and apply influences they’ve found elsewhere to create something truly individual and unique, which in turn throws conventional thinking on it’s head. Australian artist and ceramist Vicki Grima snuggly fits into this bracket given her bohemian style of creation and her sculptural approach to the humble table spoon, so I’m delighted to be bringing this project across for …

Ceramics by Louisa Taylor

I thought I’d bring some ceramics into the fold today as I’ve been admiring the work of English designer Louisa Taylor and her dainty porcelain creations. I think the finest compliment I can pay Louisa is that her works remind me an awful lot of the understated beauty found within Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’s works who is somewhat of a master of the art in my eyes. I really loved Louisa’s subtle approach to colour in these pieces her glazes …

Tableware by Sue Paraskeva

Here you can see some beautiful creations by Sue Paraskeva, a potter and artist who’s situated in the Isle of Wight. I originally came across her a couple of months ago on Vimeo but I decided not to bring the video onto the blog because it had a crazy amount of views and I didn’t want to regurgitate the same content that was already across the web. But as time’s passed it made sense to step away from the hype and focus on the tableware that she …
